Crime Prevention.

Whatever type of property you have that has value to you, if you would like it returned when stolen, you must be able to inform the Police of the serial number. If it hasn’t got one please mark it in some way you can recognise and photograph it. Frequently Police arrest persons for theft/burglary /handling stolen property and have to let the ‘thief’ go because they cannot identify the owner of the property they believe has been stolen.

How would you mark the items stolen in this report. Building and equestrian equipment are regularly stolen. Please help the Police to help you.
